We're good to go!

RunFestRun is now scheduled to take place without any lockdown restrictions.

Your safety is our priority, and we are constantly monitoring government guidelines.

Should the easing of lockdown timeline alter, we are ready to deploy our covid-safety plan to keep you safe throughout the weekend.

See below the plans we have in place if we have to operate with social distancing guidelines.

Your safety is our priority

MORE SPACE & MORE CLEANING.

  • Larger spaces will be allocated to areas where we expect crowds to gather - staff will monitor these areas to encourage social distancing. 
  • Increased cleaning of key areas.
  • One-way lanes will be signposted and marked out around our shopping village. 


OUR STAFF.

  • All staff will be required to wear appropriate PPE.


EVENT SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES – RUNNING.

  • Races are organised by Events of The North and will adhere to all UKA, Sport England and Government guidelines at the time of the event. 
  • There will be no more than 3 races each day over varying distances – with staggered starts, more space and non-contact water stations along the way.
  • All races will require pre-event registration so we can ensure social distancing will be possible.
  • A detailed race pack will be available to all runners prior to the event, including all relevant race information, guidelines and route maps. This makes sure you are as prepared as we are!

CAMPSITE & PARKING.

  • The campsite will be divided into socially distanced pitches. 
  • Arrival and exit from our car park will be managed through scheduled arrival times, with ample space between each party.


CONTACTLESS TICKETING.

  • Ticket checks will be contact free.


TOILETS, SHOWERS & WASHING STATIONS.

  • Increased levels of toilets will be provided across all areas of the site, with increased cleaning and servicing. Queuing systems will control and manage social distancing to and from the facilities.
  • Shower use and access will be controlled through socially distanced queue management, increased cleaning, separate changing areas, and controlled capacities within the shower complex.
  • Hand wash facilities and sanitation stations will be available throughout the festival site. Sinks with fresh running water at each toilet location will also be available.
